Broadcast Premiere of Genie

In late 2014 I wrote a sextet for BBC Symphony Orchestra players called Genie, scored for the slightly crazy combination of vibraphone, flute, clarinet, viola, double bass and harp. The vibraphone takes on the role of the genie throughout, bursting out of the lamp before granting wishes to the other members of the ensemble.

Genie was performed at Maida Vale Studios in London in November, and Iā€™m thrilled that the performance has been broadcast on BBC Radio 3ā€™s Hear and Now show, which you can listen to by clicking here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b052gfq0 My slot begins at 1:22:30.

A huge thank you to the performers and conductor Michael Seal for making the whole process so fun and valuable!
